Mapping with 6 Projectors I need Help.

Postby keymovie » Fri Dec 30, 2011 12:45 am

Hello! They have entrusted me to realize an offer for a Mapping of a building in the shape of Boomerang and this one foreseen to cover the whole zone with 6 Projectors. 3 for every side.
(968 feets x 129feets 90mx12m) I Have, serious doubts that I expect to solve soon in Workshop of Modul8 and Madmapper, but I am grateful for help, Thanks in advance. (I come from the edition in post-production) - serious which the ideal resolution to cover the whole zone ...? What happens to me is 3 Projectors 1024x576 each one = 3072x576 to cover these 45 meters and to another equal side. - since I solve the topic of the Blending between projectors ..? - that Graphical card must be installed in the tower of the Mac Pro.? - which is the resolution that must go off from Modul8? - They want to see a complete projection, but its too big......¿No?

I might be able to help with this, I'm doing a projection in the summer involving 15 20k hd projectors displaying an image size of 300m. I'm not sure M8 is up to the task, i'll be doing some extensive tests.
i'm also coming to Barcelona in feb

1st thing your image resolution needs to be hd or the dot size will be huge
will you be using pre-made video work?
what brightness of projectors are you planning to use

i have access to Barco 20K projectors, the UK hire cost is a lot less than barcelona

Hello Guys!

I want to do a 5 output projection mapping with modul8+madmapper on my next project, each projector with a fullHD resolution (1920x1080)
The alternative would be watchout server based and windows but i'm a big fan of madmaper and think we can get the job done with a mac and modul8 and madmaper!

1- Have you got any tips or infos about those tests you've made?

2- Can the new Mac Pro with 6 outputs do the job? If so, i´ll think about buying one to solve this.

3- Some people told me it isn't possible to connect 2 triplehead from matrox in macOS with a macbook pro late 2013, i've already seen people doing it. Do anyone have any suggestions or tutorials on how to do this?

Any help would be appreciated!!!
Thnakyou very much in advance.

Cheers and good projects!
